There’s no rain today and Adam’s ready to PLAY BALL!

Batter Up

It was a great game and Adam got his first hit on his first time at bat in “kid pitch” baseball. He also stole his first base and was quite pleased with himself. 🙂

wherein Adam experiences a rainout on the first day of Fall Ball…

Adam: Why did it have to rain?

Me: Hey, buddy, rain is just part of baseball!

Adam: I don’t get it.

Me: Look, baseball is a very simple game: You throw the ball, you hit the ball, you catch the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes it rains.** Rain is just part of baseball.

Adam: You’re weird.

It’s a great night for baseball and Adam’s Red Sox are playing the Rangers. Adam steps up to the plate and stares down the pitcher (which is actually his coach manning the sling that pitches the ball).

Adam Swings

The ball is released and CRACK! Adam hits the ball right down the third base line, lands on second base for a double, and stretches it to a triple on an overthrown ball!

Adam Hits

Then Adam brings it home on a hit off the next batter!

Adam Scores

And that just made his night!
